    A citron yellow Restrepia sp. from Ecuador.
    A little more "touchy" than most other Restrepia species, but worth it ,I think.
    Kelly, how is your clone of this species doing? 004 (656x1024).jpg

    Nice one, Spiro.
    I should be home and able to check mine tomorrow afternoon. Generally speaking, it has been a weak grower and bloomer. Most Restrepias grow like weeds for me but not this one.

    Spiro, I looked at it today and it is still alive and has some new growth but no flowers. I'm glad I looked at it because it certainly needs to be repotted with fresh medium. Maybe that will stimulate some flowering.

    Is yours mounted or potted?

    Its potted in sphagnum moss. It spent the summer outdoors, and all the old leaves show it! (spots,yellowing etc.)
